    I downloaded the 20F document on Sanofi's website under the Investor's section for ADR holders, page 181

    "Under the Treaty, the rate of French withholding tax on dividends paid to an eligible U.S. holder whose
    ownership of the ordinary shares or ADSs is not effectively connected with a permanent establishment or fixed
    base that such U.S. holder has in France is reduced to 15% and a U.S. holder may claim a refund from the French
    tax authorities of the amount withheld in excess of the Treaty rate of 15%, if any. For U.S. holders that are not
    individuals, the requirements for eligibility for Treaty benefits, including the reduced 15% withholding tax rate,
    contained in the “Limitation on Benefits” provision of the Treaty are complicated, and certain technical changes
    were made to these requirements by the protocol of January 13, 2009. U.S. holders are advised to consult their
    own tax advisers regarding their eligibility for Treaty benefits in light of their own particular circumstances"
